How many of golf's greatest have traversed the bridge crossing the Swilcan Burn?
There will not be birdies flying at the 17th hole this week after the venerable R&A added an additional 50 yards to this already very difficult hole.
The par-5 14th hole could be heaven or hell this week for the golfers. The latter if they happen to find their ball in Hell Bunker!
I would love to be in the "auld grey toon" this week for the Open Championship - in any capacity. Just to be able to get a sense for not only the event, but the place as well. I'd love to simply see those bunkers - from Beardies, to Ginger Beer, to Cottage, Road and the feared Hell. It seems that the saying of Bobby Jones has never been more true,
Too much ambition is a bad thing to have in a bunker.
I look for TW to win this week and I hope for firm fast and windy conditions. Whatever we get - enjoy!
